After a couple of weird weeks, Too Cute Tuesday is back with friends and fun again.
It’s been stressful all the way around so what better to calm our nervous stomachs than a bit of homemade ginger ale. I believe Sarah at the Too Cute Tuesday group in Saint Louis sent in this idea awhile back. Tomorrow, I’m going to be giving a big presentation at a statewide social media conference so I need all the calming agents I can get!
Zester (or even better, a microplane)
Sugar (brown or white)
Cocktail of the Night: Since I’m getting up at 4 am, just the ginger ale is fine!
1. Finish presentation just in time for Too Cute Tuesday festivities but still have a desire to do more.
2. Grate ginger and discuss this with Sue. Mix in sugar (about 1 tbsp. ginger to 1/2 tbsp. sugar).
3. While ginger is doing it’s thing for half an hour, go over presentation. Get constructive criticism from Sue and improve presentation. Listening to a nerdy presentation on craft night? Now that’s a good friend!
4. With spoon push juice out of ginger and into a glass. Squeeze 1 lemon of juice into the glass. Fill glass with seltzer. Tada! (Add more sugar to cut the lemon-y taste if you want. Bonus is it does a cool fizzing thing!)
Sue seemed surprised to find this was good. I was just happy it was something easy and tasty. Aren’t we crafty, even when slightly nervous?
